"It’s hard to describe vinyl. The way it pulls you through the speakers. You’re not just listening, you’re involved. Humans make this music, and suddenly the organ sounds like someone is inside the speaker playing it, the guitars occupy space and the singer is singing to you. I dropped the needle on Bob Dylan’s “It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)” from “Bringing It All Back Home” and my jaw dropped. It was so intimate, it was like he was RIGHT THERE! ... You’d be wowed". - Bob Lefsetz November 2017
"I remain very highly impressed by the design, construction, and price of the European Audio Team B-Sharp turntable… simply stated, European Audio Team’s B-Sharp turntable will not be a limiting factor if you want to employ far more expensive cartridges than the supplied Ortofon 2M Blue. If anyone asks you what they should buy, the EAT B-Sharp at $1595 is my personal benchmark for this market position. A no brainer, as it were, at this point in time. EAT’s B-Sharp turntable it is an outstanding value!" - Ron Nagle October 2017
Many a turntable leans towards an overly warm and lush sound, but this E.A.T isn’t one of them, instead it produces a realistic concert-hall sound with well-mastered classic music, thanks largely to its mix of detail and substance. Long may vinyl thrive and it is turntables such as this that will only help our old analogue friend survive. This turntable’s timing is excellent; there’s ample bass extension, a strong midrange with smooth as you like highs. You start to take in whole albums, listening to track after track, such is its infectious and revealing musical nature...this combination of turntable and cartridge delivers the music with sparkle and cohesion, superbly so for the money.
The B-Sharp is E.A.T’s entry-level turntable and it’s the real deal; meticulously designed, beautifully crafted and far from stupidly priced. It’s largely thanks to our European cousins that we are still able to buy quality turntables and play freshly pressed 180-gram vinyl on them. Anyone looking for a turntable sub-$3000 has to put the B-Sharp on the top of one’s list. It’s a no-brainer. - Nic Tatham September 2017
"…this is an amazingly good table for anyone bit by the vinyl bug looking for an upgrade from their starter turntable… the core sound of the B-Sharp shines through. The B-Sharp is a solid table, offering sonic performance at the top of its class in all areas. Gliding through some acoustic recordings reveals general tonality and musical pace to be solid through the B-Sharp.There is an overall “rightness” about this table…the sheer spatial ability of the B-Sharp; painting a large soundstage in all three dimensions. This is what you want from analog, but don’t get from budget tables. Finally, the tonearm/cartridge interface is superb, with the 2M Blue turning in one of the best performances I’ve heard. …the build quality of the B-Sharp is excellent throughout, and this is a table you’ll love having on your equipment rack, or wherever you choose to place it. The plinth has a lovely gloss black finish, and the tonearm is a work of industrial art. Priced as it is, the B-Sharp offers a high level of performance at a level that is cost effective for music enthusiasts with even a modest record collection. It proves to be an excellent performer." - Jeff Dorgay August 2017
"And while E.A.T may consider the B-Sharp an ‘entry-level’ turntable, the truth is this range kicks in where many brands taper off." Marc Rushton stereonet (Australia)
